      Thank you.
      And considering a lot of the inaccurate info I see on this forum at times, it may be useful for more than just newbies.

    Nice video. Certainly important factors, not sure about the top 5, but maybe...

    What would you say are the top 5 on-page factors, and a fifth off-page factor?

      When it comes to the algorithm, there is certainly room for debate.

        Well how will you rank 'content' on the basis of importance? I think it should to be mentioned on your top 5 list.

          Great point.
          I classify content as a "non-keyword" ranking factor

          Top 5 non-keyword ranking factors:
          1, Unique content
          2, Freshness of content
          3, Update History (historically how often the content is updated)
          4, Links on page pointing to other url's on the domain
          5, External links pointing outside of domain

          (I would say the important really drops off after the first two)
